Placement and duration

The Compliance Summer Analyst Program is a 10-week direct placement program that begins in June. Summer Analysts may be placed with a compliance advisory team that is aligned with one of our businesses — Institutional Securities, Wealth Management, Investment Management or U.S. banks. Summer Analysts may also be placed on a team covering specific global compliance functions, such as financial crimes, regulatory relations, quantitative data analytics, information controls or global monitoring and testing. Collectively, these teams are integral to the Firm’s global compliance risk management program.

The Summer Analyst Program includes an orientation to the Firm, senior management speaker seminars, and social and networking events to build Summer Analysts' professional networks. The Program also includes mentorship opportunities and community service events.

Training program

The Summer Analyst Program includes three days of orientation: one day of Firmwide orientation, one day of business unit-specific training and a final day of compliance-specific training. Summer Analysts also receive considerable training on the job.
